Sources of finance

Sources of finance for the Australian documentary slate (not including broadcaster-produced titles), 2007/08–2015/16

Next update July 2018

While industry sources (mainly broadcasters including the ABC and SBS) provide the majority of finance to the documentary slate – 67 per cent across the five years 2011/12 to 2015/16 – government funding underpins annual documentary activity, with Screen Australia contributing 14 per cent of finance (including 1 per cent through the Producer Equity Program, introduced in July 2011), the state agencies 5 per cent and the Producer Offset 14 per cent cashflowed in various ways.
